This 14-day adventure will take you to the southern face of Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain. Trek through breathtaking mountain scenery, quaint Sherpa villages, and Buddhist monasteries as you ascend to Everest Base Camp (17,598 feet above sea level).
Explore the temples, shrines, bazaars, and restaurants of Kathmandu before taking a scenic mountain flight to Lukla. Then trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley and take in the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It’s a challenging ascent to the popular village of Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Khumbu Sherpas, so you’ll spend an extra day there to adjust and aid acclimatization. After a well-deserved rest day, it’s off to Tengboche, where you’ll be greeted by a stunning 360-degree panoramic view of the Himalayas. The views of Everest, the Lhotse-Nuptse Wall, Ama Dablam, and Kantega dominate this peaceful and spiritual location—known for being one of the most tranquil and inspiring places in the world.
While passing Buddhist monasteries, views of Everest get closer every day. This stunning trek visits both Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar (18,225 feet), a viewpoint that is often a coveted goal for adventurous walkers in the Himalayas, as it’s recognized as the best vantage point from which to see Mount Everest. After trekking to base camp and Kala Patthar, return at a leisurely pace to Namche and Lukla for your return flight to Kathmandu.
